One the oil rig where I used to pretend to work, we said "Have a nice day." but it meant the same thing.

Default You are mixing apples and oranges again. One more explanation

Wrong he has the same mass in kg but weighs (using the strict definition) different in Newtons. Go back and read your homework assignment again. Lets review

Mass and weight are different see this link

An Astronaut has the same mass of 69 kg on the moon and the earth but his weight on earth is = 676.2 Newtons

On the moon he weighs 111.573 Newtons

Default Re: He should talk to longride about wearing a full face helmet

I live in Portland which has similar seasons to Seattle, and most of the sport riders here gride pretty much year round. If we stayed home for the rain we'd never get. On the other hand my boss rides a Harley most of the year, and he told me a story about him driveing (yes driving) to a monthly HOG meeting, arrived to see about 3 bikes and many cars in the parking lot and walked inside to see about 120 guys in leather jackets and Chaps!

Portland, where rain is just liquid sunshine....

Default Re: He should talk to longride about wearing a full face helmet

I have a friend who lives in Salem, and, maybe because he was brought up in California, making concessions to the weather was just not done. "Hot?" "Of course it will Hot! Suck it up, man!" of course, this means you can be pretty darn sure the road will be dry eight months out of the year. He got addicted to the adrenalin rush of getting right at the limit of a good tire's adhesion, and not worrying about a wet spot on the road. He and the lunatics that he rides with are the only sport bikers I know in the state.

I rode in a helicopter with a guy who made such a lethal one that the pilot had his head out the window for a while. What that guy's body did to food was just....wrong.

I can't claim to be a 'true' sport rider as I ride a VFR800, but there are plenty of bikes commuting in winter here. Gerbing sell a lot of stuff, and the rest of us just layer up and end up looking like the Michelin Man

"I am a real biker, and a real California Biker and Motorcycle Lawyer."



I guess that about says it for his skills in law, english and motorcycling.
